I have put together a seven week programme of seminars that deal with research practice drawing on my own experience. The programme is independent of any official development programme, but forms a natural complement to other things running at BU, such as the Grants and Writing Academies. The course caters for all types of research not just those based in the sciences and the weekly sessions will consist of a seminar with an opportunity for discussion, as well as time in which participants can discuss their current projects, papers and bids.
The programme is free and open to all members of academic and professional/support staff at BU. A certificate of attendance and completion will be issued and registration is via Organisational Development: firstname.lastname@example.org
The only pre-requisite is that participant’s make a commitment via a ‘learning contract’ to attend each of the sessions, unless absent due to unforeseen circumstances outside work. The programme will run on Tuesday lunchtimes (12.15 to 13.45) and starts on the 21nd October 2014. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch if they wish. The minimum cohort size is 8 and confirmation that the programme will run will be given by 1st October 2014. If there is sufficient interest a second cohort may run in the spring term. You will find further details at Staff Intranet including an outline programme.
